# The data do not provide sufficient evidence that the average distance is greater

A golfer wished to find a ball that would travel more than 170 yards when hit with his 6-iron with a club head speed of 90 miles per hour. He had a golf equipment lab test a low compression ball by having a robot swing his club 12 times at the required speed.Data from this test had a sample mean of 171.6 yards with a sample standard deviation of 2.4 yards. Assuming normality, carry out a hypothesis test at the 0.05 significance level to determine whether the ball meets the golferâs requirements.
